New York City will be flooded with 72 hours of nonstop improv at the end of June, and Quipfire! will be right in the thick of it. Catch us at noon on Sunday, June 30 at Theater 80 (80 St. Mark’s Place)!
You’ll need a wristband to see us, which will also get you into several hundred shows that weekend. They call it the Del Close Marathon for a reason, after all!*
*because just like the messenger who ran from the Battle of Marathon to bring news of the victory to Athens, people have been known to collapse and die after this event.
Get your Reunions nights going right with some rapid-fire comedy from Princeton’s oldest improv group! Fresh off competing in the nationals of the College Improv Tournament, we finally have a chance to do what we’ve been training for all year: entertain theaters full of drunk alums before they go hook up with each other.
Our shows last just over an hour, so you’ll be back in the tents right when the party really gets going, but long before it gets really sweaty. You know, primetime.
11pm on Thursday and Friday, 11:30pm on Saturday
$7 – Get tickets at Frist or at the door
Our own Ellie Kemper, of Bridesmaids and The Office fame, wrote a very funny article for GQ: “Can Men Be Funny?“
Fresh off the CIT Nationals, two Princeton Preview shows, and hosting Shirleypalooza, Quipfire! is ready to get back into what we do best: improvise in front of well-dressed, tipsy, and hollerin’ undergrads. We’re especially excited to show you all version 2.0 of our improvised musical, now with twice the musical and 30% more improvisation. Get your tickets soon, ’cause they’re selling like hotcakes in a world in which hotcakes are commodity necessary for conducting business or executing logistics, much in the way oil or minerals are in our world.
We really want you to come here, and we wrote you this heartfelt letter. Come see us at This Side of Princeton, the comedy show at Colonial Club, our own shows in the Rocky/Mathey common rooms, and at the Activities Fair during either Princeton Preview! We’d love to meet you and convince you why Princeton is the best darn place of all.
BREAKING NEWS: Quipfire! performed with Baby Wants Candy on Tuesday! We would have told you, but it all happened so fast, we swear!
But that’s all in the past now. The real story the article about us in the Daily Princetonian and the 85 (and counting) hateful and hilarious comments it has spawned.
NOTE: Unfortunately, the Prince‘s article about us was lost when their site went down. But for a brief moment, it was the most commented-on article in recent history, with over 90 comments. We all mourn its passing.
Next week Quipfire! heads to Chicago to compete in the national championships of the College Improv Tournament! If you happen to be in town, you can score tickets for our playoff match. And if you can’t make it, just enjoy this goofy 30-second video they asked us to make.
Missing that Passover meal with your crazy family? Join ours! Quipfire! will be improvising a seder at the Center for Jewish Life, and you’re invited. We’ll all be playing crazy characters, so come as yourself or your best impression of your bubbeleh. Make sure to sign up!
Have you ever seen Wicked or Phantom of the Opera and thought, “Man, they put way too much work into this”? Then come watch us improvise a musical right in front of your very eyes!
And if you prefer your improv to be a cappella, don’t worry––we’ll still have our signature mix of shortform games to get the night started off right.
